Portrait of Makanchila

Scope and Content

B&W photographic print. 'Makanchila was originally of Mokongtsu, a village a little to the north-east of Mokokchung. Most Aos have somewhat wavy hair, but very curly hair like this is exceptional. Usually the hair is black, but Mills knew of a girl in Chuchu Yimlang of pure Ao ancestry with red hair that could "only be described as Burne-Jones." '
